Insane CoolAid

I have to manual I dont want to manually download articles! Bring back the feature that automatically downloads for me.

Mohd Akmal Zaki

Thanks for the redesign UI and bug detected Thanks for redesign the apps according to Lollipop UI, it beautiful. Maybe in the near future there's gonna be more tweaks. There is also bug detected, where share option takes too long time to pop up contacts list in Hangout app. I've done restarting my machine, clear cache but the problem remains. Fix it please.

James Beltz

Nice I haven't seen any new video posts in well over a week which is highly unusual. Has a new update caused a change of some kind?

sushil khanal

Visit website feature I can no longer enter the giveaway from the aa app itself.. instead i get browser options, i liked it when you could do it all from aa app.. i had eveything logged-in, just had to press couple of buttons. Now i have to log into my twitter, google etc.. please fix this

Shawn SQ Zhang

UI Yes Finally!! The update. What's with the deception of "Small bug fixes"? This is a huge update actually.

Marvin Marcos

New Interface I love the New Interface of Android Authority! Looking forward for tbe future updates

Matt Lang

A regular read This is one of the best apps for Android news - a great source and easy to use. Great material redesign too.

Satyajit Basu

Design changed for the better You guys really heard me. Took a while but it came through. Kudos! Continue to love the content and information provided.

Richard T.

Great app but can be improved. 1. The app needs to sync between devices on what apps have been read, unread, and starred. 2. The app needs to support multi-window for Samsung devices.

Anuj Singh

Awesome After new UI the look is good Love this app it gives me all the latest news and keeps me updated

Simon Bottini

Cool update I'm loving the update material design is great and the bug fixes were needed.

Kyle Horkley

Great app. You used AppYet to make this app (don't worry, I'll keep it a secret).

Sathish Rajendiran

Revamp the UI Though got flattened, the UI still needs a lot of improvement. Please bring out a colorful Android Authority as we are big fans of it.

Tae H. Kim

Solid App! I'll give it 5 Stars if I win a giveaway :)

Edwin Cobb

Nice UI My preferred choice for Android related news. The new UI is better then ever. Wish choice of colour will do aside the default white and black theme

Mapi Pato

After last update videos stopped Showing,away with this crappy app...

Ryan Awol

Material design is phenomenal.. What the topic says...

Dilan Samarappuli

Likes the new UI Cool app to get android news

Cameron Schmidt

Galaxy s5 Can't view pictures correctly in full screen

Alec Jarvis

Angshuman Sarkar

Best description by app Some time the app is crush .

Haris Baig

Oops Not getting new articles even I tried to sync many times.

Ahnaf Mahmud

Good App This is based on appyet app building platform. So any feature suggestions needs to go to appyet and not android authority. But other than that, good work using appyet and hope you bring more future updates that will improve it's functionality.

Tim White

Motorola Nexus 6 Really liking attending AA!!!

Nouri AlAshour

Why don't you call your app "AA A for A" lol

Matic Lesjak

Great This app is perfect for beeing up to date with the latest news from android. 5 stars

Bill Perrotta

Best app and forum Phandroid got caught sleeping. Now I go with the authority.

Aaron Myers

Great! Excellent app, definitely 5 stars. Material design is awesome!

Sean Martin Andes

Fix the forums tab. Moves around unlike the other tabs. Nevertheless, the best Android RSS Feed I have ever seen.

Arpit Subham Subudhi

Lovely app This is a really very good app It keepa me updated about the android industry

Sahil Sitaram Jadhav

Awesome app Useful for knowing more about phones and innovative techs and new realease

Zu Ko

Cool! This is perfect!) thank you for this must havr app!:)

Pavel Tikhonov

Generic design used by many apps based on this RSS reader engine. I expected better from AA

taras epikhin

Fresh news Bestest app about android world

doung sengchhoung

From the best to the worst ,After Updating.. Everything gone crazy....I can't play on video ..then it directs to Youtube app....What's more in Video column, there is no video available.... so I could not even read anything... it keeps loading all the time...

Brian Embry

Great App I read about all these problems. I don't know what is happening, but this app has worked flawlessly on 3 different phones...

Wayne Miller

Meh I'm still a bit of an android newb, so I'm looking for as much info, help, and tips as I can find. I installed AA and AC, hoping that between the 2, I'd have all my needs met. Gotta say that the AA app is seriously lacking in comparison. Fewer articles, a less active mb community (which is where I get most of my answers), no videos (why even have a section for them if there aren't any?), and the app just seems bulky and slow. Pretty disappointing to be honest.

Brian Cabrera


vinoth kumar

Awesome The app is very good and info ill getting from it is also great add some material design to the app it looks great ill think

Danny Villaroel

Good app This app is great with new content that I'm finding myself always reading. There are some bugs needed to be worked on like videos not working properly from time to time, along with other minor which I can't remember I off the top of my head. The content overall is definitely a delight and has become my daily read.

omar gonzalez

The Best Excellent application very informative and helpful. It keeps me update, thank you guy's...and keep up the good work.

Evin Tunador

I love the news that the app gives me, but the app itself isn't the best. You can tell that each article is made on a website and then automatically ported over to this app. This is shown when visual elements overlap. The fact that it doesn't show comments, and I can't see the results of their polls. Maybe it just doesn't like my screen size (5.5 inches)

Prasanna Venkatesan

Awesome Seriously top notch android news.The black theme kicks up my amoled phone and looks sweet. Seriously good job on the app and the timely updates . Thanks :) would be better if the read articles are synced to the cloud after clean flashing / resetting device all the starred and read articles are gone. So would be better if you had a login and made it better.

Nico Christian

Update issue After i updated it i cang get any articles, and i have to open my web browser to read the article, and sync now still wont work, re-installing still wont work, pls update it.

prateek patel

Nice app This app gives lot of information on Android, Android devices. It will be great if you release more article on development. They is one bug I found on my nexus 5 running Android 5.1.1, it shows only one image in article in full screen others are not. Even if I click on second image it still shows first image in article in full screen. Please fix this

David B

Only ten articles I have the htc one m7 and I have only ever been able to get ten articles to load from when I was on 4.4.3 and now 5.0.2

Rorro Portillo

Reviews & Apps TABs missing Please, consider Adding: Reviews & Apps TABs. They are a must for the App. Thank u all

Abin Benny

A step ahead Thanks for keeping me up to date with all the news happening around the world

Himesh Kulkarni

Martial design please This is an Android Authority app without material design! Come on guys.

Roger Delp

Awesome app but Need to fix videos. On my note 3 the same 2 videos have been on there and never change or increase. Please fix. I still think this app is great. I have to go to YouTube to watch the videos all the time now though.

Melissa Miller

Horrible update It's only updating articles and spamming the heck out of my notifications. Get the video updates working and I'll change my rating. Otherwise this is useless to me and will delete the app. :-(

Syed Ali

Video tab broken I am not seeing any video updates probably since the last update.

Kev Mc

Great Nice app! Good looking UI. Great articles. Great reviews. Just great!

Richard T.

Great app but can be improved. 1. The app needs to sync between devices on what apps have been read, unread, and starred. (When I have finished reading an article on my phone I don't want to see the same article that is bolded as unread on my tablet.) 2. The app needs to support multi-window for Samsung devices.

Henry Weaver

Keeps one well informed. Articles are complete and to the point. I like it very well.

irteza ali

S3 best app ever for technology...phones smart watches.. reviews.. unboxing..water tests..drop tests..and ofcrs give aways...lov u guys

Bryan Gomez

Great Tech App I use this app everyday. Works so smoothly.

Albert Pino

AA App Android Authority A Google Plus accounts app that you see main seam on bookmark of Google Plus account!!

Kartheek Pathuri

The app itself is fine. Text formatting in the articles could be a little better. The only major problem with the app is the notifications. They could have been much better if the notification showed some of the content of the new post.

Rick Anderson

Advertising Gone! Advertising removed - changed from 1 star to 4. Now, there is still a header issue that covers the story title which needs fixed. The word old needs to be removed as the new app is awful.

Uffe Erup Larsen

I use it every day This app keeps you updated on everything about Android, new phones, apps etc. I absolutely recommend this app - as well as their great videos on YouTube.

Brian Williams

Please keep it going! This 'old' app is still far better than the new one.

Steve Denney

Better than the new one ! HATED the ads (Why did they put them on in the first place ?) now they have gone I have deleted the new version and am keeping this one ! PLEASE keep this version going, I LOVE it !!!

Paul Kendrick

Excellent Truly informative absolutely love android authority a must for all those with more than just a casual interest in all that's android

carl wood

Was great. Now sucks I don't have a problem with the ads at bottom of screen, but now pop up ads too!!!??? I'm looking for a new app to replace this one

Isaac Martinez

Note 4 This App got even better. No Ads now... but I need to try it out 1st.

Shah Cruz

Please Fix It I can't see the title of the article

Dayanand Thammaiah

Thank you Thanks for removing ads?

Shahzeb Ali

Little bug When I open tha articles, the heading of the article is hidden behind the main articles heading

Ty Quinn

The share button is just an FAB for the sake of having one. An FAB is supposed to be for an apps most essential function: like a compose button in an email, or a new status button for social media - that sort of thing. Not a "share" button which is distracting and in no way relates to an essential function of the app or is it common to use. It's pointless. Also the title gets cut off from the top.

Hans Harby

Very informative! I love the app, but there's one eyesore for me. The notification icon at the top looks like a white block on my Moto X Pure Edition. Hope this can be fixed with a future update. Other than that, great app!

Mohamed Hafniyaas Mohamed Hanaas

Simple and Superb - NOT ANYMORE AM RETRACTING BELOW DESCRIPTION - THE INTEGRATION OF ADVERTISING AND THE TOOL BAR HEADER BUG HAD MADE THE APP CUMBERSOME AND CLUTTERED! Does what it says well and with out much of a hassle. Simple, neat and clatter free. Has plenty of content and informative. Only issue is that aftet the recent update, the toolbar in header is not automatically disappearing after some time; It's being persistent.

Rebecca SD

Why the ads? No premium version... Hate the bar of ad and ad pop-ups. Add a paid premium version considering that you guys want to make money! But at least I will avoid the annoying ads!

Gregory Opera

Plenty of content, worth downloading. With a mountain of content available, this is one of the best applications available to stay up-to-date with the latest in the world of Android. I would love to see however, Pebble/Pebble Time/Pebble Time Round support integrated, along with "watch" word notification (i.e. Get notified when articles/reviews/videos contain user-specified words)...

Rohan Saxena

No words JUST the best but should provide the new tech products for INDIA it only shows products buy option in USA .. i wanted to buy screenstic joystic but I couldt find plz help :(.....

Nate Davis

Full screen + full volume ads! Yay! Nothing like browsing before bed and BAM! Have an ad! Full screen video and volume! Now either I'll have to remember to mute my phone before I browse or just realise AA is an awful ad shill and go elsewhere. AA's ad insertions are beyond unreasonable. Bye-bye.

Adrian Baciuc

Advertising went from ok to appalling I was fond of the AA team and up until recently this app was my goto for Android news. Not anymore, the advertising is from another world.

Carl Esposito

Adds :( but still my favorite team for Android news Was 5 stars, had to remove one for introducing adds. Seen reviews on the new app aren't the best so will stick here in the meantime. If the intention is to get rid of this app for the new one and there are adds in the new one please have a pay to remove feature.

Denis Twomey

Could be great Great for the latest in android news. The app could do with a bit of work. The banner announcing 10 unread messages or whatever stays on top covering the title of all the new messages. Strange and annoying.

venkatesh dixit

By reading articles from this app you will definitely start loving smartphones and especially android!.But one problem due to recent changes can't read heading while reading an article in detail.Please solve it.

Brijesh babu

Older version was much better With this version there are ads,lags and the title of each article are not visible as it is covered up by the bar!!

Mohd Akmal Zaki

Title "hidden" and Ads.. Title of article is hidden by the app bar. Maybe something wrong with the app scroll bar. And the Ads is making comeback to the app making it more worse...

Douglas Moore

Ads The pop up ads are annoying at best. Going to uninstall and stop reading these articles.

Graham T

Gone downhill Used to love this app but it now is a pain. My tablet no longer gives an article title at the top. The killer for me though is the full screen game adds that open when I go to close it. Maybe if enough people uninstall AA they might change back to just banner adds I could live with the adds if they could be swiped away and were between articles but not when I have to find the x to close it. .....edit: I have uninstalled but reluctantly as they provide good news. But you have to draw the line with these apps that push more and more adds.

Shyan De Abreu

Lovely app The main title gets cut-off wen viewing the article.

Yash Gumaste

Great app Somewhat material design with no adds. ?. New app is aweseome.

Kurt von Klopfenstein

Always in the know I really like this app in that I get the latest information on Android. In addition to this I have purchased many outstanding deals through AA that otherwise I would not of known existed.

Nicholas Richards

Android authority Keeps you upbto date on everything in the moble tech world. It's been in my back pocket for years.

Tom Rogers

Good app Gives up-to-date tech news. Love it

Prakash Kumar

Facing problems after recent update Top banner does not hide and remains almost all the time hiding the heading.

Juan Fernandez

Article titles not displaying I use this app on a daily basis. But not sure what has happened since their last update. Once I click an article, it's title does not display properly, being cut in more than half. Forcing me to back out to be able to check the title. It's very disturbing.

Jeremy Cobb

Aggressive advertising Unless the new app stops force feeding me adverts via auto links, I am out.

Chai Hong Yun

Not as good as last time Ads pop up too frequently, can't see article's title after tapped into it.

Andrew Galipeau

Great app, works well with Galaxy s6 edge plus

Josbel Gonzalez

Last update messed everything up One of the best things this App had was that the adds were not in your face. Now they are every where

Mike White

Huawei Nexus 6P Really like attending AA!!! Lots of really useful information.

Mark Hayes

Great information On this several times a day. Only problem is all the great deals in the states when you live in ripoff UK.

Kevin Rodriguez

GREAT APP! sad to see that its "(old)"?

jc jc

Recent updates seem ok I like this version but not the all new version that is also available.

Ginly Victor

Very informative Updated & Trending information on gadgets available here.

Avinesh Prahladi

Cool Stuff One of the best tech sites I must say. I cherish their in-depth coverage of the gadgets and their detailed reviews. Keep up the good work, guyz.

Anas Balaa

Old is Gold! Great Site and Great App, keep up the good work! Please keep updating this app, rather than the other "new" app on the Play Store

Howard Fall

App works good Good information, easy to use format. Use it every day to keep informed

Rob Kampa

Good This is number one and drippler number two last update made it slow especially when going to the link online. Very slow

Chuck Thompson

Almost perfect Perfect except that some articles contain endless photos of the same thing (phone reviews). It can be difficult to scroll through and find the dividing point between pictures of different devices.

Mamoon Bakeer

Great but... Great app for all things Android but minus 2 stars for the annoying theme changing every time it updates. I like the dark theme but it keeps reverting to default white background with pale text color. Please stop it.

Alexander Osondu

Great app for reading all major Android stories, rumours, phone specs and anything Android. I like those candid reviews especially reviews by Josh :)

Tom Monsanto

Very informative! Makes you updated with goings-on in the world of android. A must-have for android fanatics!

navi kriss
